In Junot Diaz's 'Islandborn,' A Curious Child Recreates Her Dominican Roots

In Islandborn, Lola asks her grandmother what she remembers most about the Dominican Republic.

The Pulitzer Prize-winning author's new children's book follows Lola, a young Dominican-American who is "haunted by the fact that she was born on an island that she can't remember," Díaz says.
